ACES Coalition of West Virginia


Prevent Child Abuse WV and TEAM for WV Children are pleased to be part of the ACES (Adverse Childhood Experiences) Coalition of West Virginia. The Coalition is working to achieve our mission to improve the health and well-being of all West Virginians by reducing the impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and preventing their occurrence.

The ACES Coalition is pleased to offer the availability of two films Paper Tigers and Resilience that, in the words of Director James Redford (KPJR Films), show us, through science and the stories of our young people, how adults are stepping up to help children who are exposed to adverse experiences. We hope the stories of children, educators and scientists grappling with the results of trauma help raise awareness, foster conversation and inspire action.

Paper Tigers and Resilience are available for free local screenings by request from the through the WV ACES Coalition at the following link:

KPJR Films, which produced Paper Tigers and Resilience, also put together the following five-minute video overview of the ACE Study.

We hope you will join us as a member of the ACES Coalition. Please email our ACES Coalition Coordinator, Tricia Kingery, to be added to our email list for the ACES Coalition.
